The food is bland sometimes and doesn't have any taste to it. The owner would talk to her phone and let her server do her work.

Because it was close we dropped in 5 people for supper. Unfortunately there are not many choices in this part of town. Next time, we would take the extra 15/20 minutes and drive to Chinatown or another part of the city. Service was friendly. The food was just so-so. The crispy beef was not crispy at all. The rice was... More

On our first visit to this restaurant, when asked, the very helpful waitress described the dishes we were planning to order. When our food arrived, it was as described and was very good. We have been there several times and plan to go back any time we are in the area. The fact that most of the customers are of... More

This is my fifth visit to this local dim sum type Chinese restaurant at lunch. Dim sum is a separate menu so you order specific dishes rather than choose from the cart. The full menu and specials are available at lunch as well. The satay beef and chicken has a very flavourful sauce and the most tender delicious meat with... More

A recent video going viral has a lady who was served noodles with a bug in it. The customer service she received was abhorrent. Judging by many other reviews on here, seems like customer service is an issue here, and I feel people should be made aware of this.

Have ordered take out on two occasions. Both times food was barely edible. Greasy rice, chicken balls hard and barely covered with sauce. Egg rolls are inedible and were discarded after a taste. Small portions as well. When I ordered by phone and went to pick up the food I paid br credit card. The lady working there did not... More

Initial Reaction: Waitress/hostess and staff were eating in front of the main door when we entered. She got up from her meal, wiped her mouth with a napkin then escorted us to our table. Forget hygiene. Tables have dozens of plastic tablecloths stacked on top of them, so when we leave they don't have to clean they just ball up... More

When we visit from Toronto, dinner at or from the Golden Restaurant is always a dining highlight of our trip. From appetizers and soups to main dishes, the variety is vast and the flavours exceptional. Servings are generous, seafood dishes are not just veggie filler and the service is friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this spot whether eating in... More

We order from The Golden fairly regularly. Great deal on "dinners for x# people". I would recommend it.
